Christmas greetings

This year I hand stitched the star for the front of our Christmas cards. I used two layers of blue paper to give it strength. Funny, I already have the idea for next year's card. Love and joy to all.

The mandala for December is finished. If you've looked at earlier posts, you will see that I been intrigued by the work of Rebecca Blair. I am pleased with this "Flower of Life" creation.

So, I did a mandala a month. Do I continue. I think so. Actually, I have more than 12 in my collection.

Sketchbook drawing seems to be keeping my interest. I continue to be fascinated at how the pieces can be so varied with a limited amount of stroke designs.

Nov Mandala and sketchbook

November can be so beautiful. I delight in the fall colors. I used watercolors and pens on watercolor paper for this month's mandala.

I have been doing a fair amount of drawing, but decided to post this piece done in the style of Rebecca Blair at There is so much to learn by using pens only. The balance between light and dark is helpful in many of my art pursuits.
